KEMCO announces Asdivine Hearts JRPG for Mac, Menace for iOS
I’ve been a fan of KEMCO’s games since first meeting them at E3 a few years ago. I’ve covered many of their releases since then, and as far as I can remember, this is the first time I’ve been able to talk about any sort of Mac compatibility. Here it is, though—KEMCO has announced two Apple-friendly games in the Asdivine RPG series: Asdivine Hearts for Mac and Asdivine Menace for iPhone and iPad.
As with most KEMCO titles, the Asdivine games feature “old-school” style graphics and JRPG gameplay that will appeal to retro gamers or anyone seeking classic, turn-based battles with some deep strategic elements. The approach has worked quite effectively on smaller mobile screens, and with the release of Asdivine Hearts, we’ll get to see how it translates to the 27″ 5k iMac (or whatever size Mac you happen to have). So, let’s start there:
Asdivine Hearts for Mac
The world of Asdivine has been rendered to take advantage of your Mac’s additional processor power, offering details such as meandering clouds, lapping waves, sparkling magic, and dynamic skill effects.
Asdivine Hearts also comes with plenty of extra content, including subquests, a battle arena, and an enemy guide to fill. Of course, players can still expect to find the 2D turn-based action for which KEMCO is known.
One year ago, the world of Asdivine was enveloped by a brilliant flash of light. Since that time, the influence of shadow has only continued to grow ever more powerful across the face of the land. And though the event itself was undoubtedly connected with the heavens, few people seem to have realized the far-reaching implications of what transpired. Now turning to the present, a surprising revelation awaits a young man by the name of Zack and his childhood friend, Stella, in the capital from a chubby cat claiming to be none other than the Light Deity and declaring the world to be on the verge of a great collapse.
Although skeptical at first, this band of unlikely adventurers soon finds this chance encounter to be only the beginning of an adventure set to not only change their lives, but their fates, as well.
Asdivine Menace for iOS
Mobile gamers need not feel left out, as the English version of Asdivine Menace is now available for iOS and two price points. Before we get to that, here’s your story…
After receiving a message from a neighboring world that the universe as they know it is on the verge of being destroyed, Izayoi, the deity of Asdivine sets off on an adventure, criss-crossing four planets with a trio of very idiosyncratic spirits in the hopes of preventing this from happening. But will their combined powers really be enough to upend a fate already seemingly etched in stone?!
Asdivine Menace features 2D battles with refined controls and smooth animations, plenty of quests and challenges, weapon crafting, and some waifu matchmaking with Izayoi’s spirit companions.
Asdivine Menace is available in the iTunes App Store for free (with in-app purchases) or a $4.99 premium title that comes with 1,500 in-app bonus points. You still have the option to purchase more, but KEMCO promises this is not necessary to play the game through to the end.
